Opportunities for PhD in Finance: Research Assistantships offered

Wednesday, 07/07/2010

We are proud to announce the establishment of a PhD Program in Finance offered in collaboration with the ICMA Centre of the University of Reading, UK.

We invite qualified and motivated individuals to pursue academic research of the highest quality in the broader field of Finance and to benefit from the world class expertise of faculty at both ALBA and ICMA.

The Collaboration
The collaboration between the two institutions was established with the mutual aim to:

  • Promote the mobility of staff and postgraduate research students for the purpose of personal and professional development
  • Provide cultural and intellectual enrichment opportunities for staff and students of both parties

Programme Structure
Students of this programme will complete their first year at the ICMA centre and continue at ALBA Graduate Business School for one and a half years with the last term of their studies taking place in Reading. Supervision will be joint: one supervisor from the ICMA Centre and one from ALBA. Most importantly, students will graduate with a Full-Time PhD in Finance from the ICMA Centre, Henley Business School, University of Reading and will be registered as “working-away” while at ALBA. The structure of this programme will be exactly the same to the existing PhD programme at the University of Reading, with the same admissions criteria.

Waived fees / Stipend
Fees will be waived for successful applicants. Furthermore, students will also receive a stipend both during their time in Reading and at ALBA (and be required to undertake some teaching/research assistance as applicable to all PhD students).
